EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)But when we are judged.—This verse explicitly declares that the condemnation following an unworthy partaking was not final condemnation, but temporal suffering to save them from being condemned with the heathen.
We are chastened of the Lord - It is "his" act; and it is not vengeance and wrath; but it is to be regarded as the chastisement of a father's hand, in order that we should not be condemned with the wicked. "We are under the discipline" (παιδευόμεθα paideuometha) of the Lord; we are dealt with as children, and are corrected as by the hand of a father; compare Hebrews 12:5-10, and 2 Corinthians 6:9. The design of God's correcting his children is, that they should be "reclaimed," and not "destroyed."
That we should not be condemned with the world - It is implied here:
(1) That the world - those who were not Christians, would be condemned;
(2) That Paul regarded the Corinthians, whom he addressed, and who had even been guilty of this improper manner of observing the Lord's Supper, and who had been punished for it as true Christians; and,
(3) That the purpose which God had in view in inflicting these judgments on them was, that they might be purified, and enlightened, and recovered from their errors, and saved. This is the design of God in the calamities and judgments which he brings on his own children - And so now, if he afflicts us, or leaves us to darkness, or follows the communion with the tokens of his displeasure, it is, that we may be recovered to a deeper sense of our need of him; to juster views of the ordinance; and to a more earnest wish to obtain his favor.
with the world—who, being bastards, are without chastening (Heb 12:8).Hebrews 12:6-8; and doth it for a good end, to prevent the eternal condemnation of the soul with the impenitent sinners of the world, giving us our hell in this life, that we may escape it in the life to come.
we are chastened of the Lord; as children by a father, in love and kindness, in order to bring to a sense of sin, repentance for it, and acknowledgment of it, and behave the better for the future:
that we should not be condemned with the world; the world of ungodly men, the men of the world, carnal, worldly, and Christless sinners. There is a world, a multitude of them that will be condemned. So far has Christ been from dying for the redemption and salvation of every individual person in the world, that there is a world of men that will be righteously condemned at the last day. Now the present afflictions and chastisements of the saints are laid upon them, and blessed to them for their spiritual good, that they may not be condemned to the second death, to everlasting fire, to endless damnation, or be punished with everlasting destruction along with them.But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)32. chastened] Cf. Psalm 94:12; Proverbs 3:11-12; Hebrews 12:5-11.
that we should not be condemned with the world] A clear proof that damnation is an incorrect translation in 1 Corinthians 11:29. ‘The world’ here is not the Divine order of things as established by God’s ordinance, as in ch. 1 Corinthians 3:22; St John 1:10, but as thrown into disorder by man’s sin. See St John 14:17; John 15:18; 1 John 2:15-16, &c.1 Corinthians 11:32. Σὺν τῷ κόσμῳ, with the world) The world’s condemnation is therefore certain, being without chastisement.
Correct. The same word as the last. With this construe by the Lord; not with chastened. The antithesis to judging ourselves is thus preserved. So Rev., in margin.
Signifying the final condemnatory judgment; but in 1 Corinthians 11:29 the simple κρῖμα temporary judgment, is made equivalent to this. See note.
